"Reviewers and critics have not always agreed on how well the science fiction label fits Ray Bradbury, but the immense popularity of works like 'The Martian Chronicles' and 'The Illustrated Man' leaves no doubt as to the enduring status of this important writer. This Critical Companion examines, in a Literary Heritage chapter, the situation of Bradbury's works within the science fiction genre and explores thematic concerns that set works like 'Fahrenheit 451' and 'Dandelion Wine' apart from conventional popular SF writings. This introduction to Bradbury, written especially for students, traces Bradury's [sic] interesting life, examining his early literary efforts, his forays into HOllywood, and his recent writing projects." -from the rear cover.
